How do students register for courses at Friday Harbor Labs?
Students must apply and be accepted by Friday Harbor Labs before they can register for FHL courses or reserach apprenticeships. There are different registration procedures for spring, summer and autumn quarters at FHL, and for University of Washington (UW) students and non-UW students.

SPRING AND AUTUMN COURSES: To register for the FHL "ZooBot Quarter" (a combination of courses in spring) or the FHL "Marine Biology Quarter" (a combination of courses in autumn) UW students accepted by FHL will be provided with Add Codes by FHL staff so students can register themselves through "MyUW" in the usual way. All non-UW students will be registered by FHL staff.

SPRING AND AUTUMN RESEARCH APPRENTICESHIPS: To register for FHL Research Apprenticeships (one 15-credit course) in Spring or Autumn Quarter, all students will be registered by FHL staff through UW Professional and Continuing Education (UWPCE). UW students may not register themselves for research apprenticeships.

SUMMER COURES: To register for FHL Summer Courses, FHL staff will assist all students to be registered through UW Professional and Continuing Education (UWPCE). Students, including UW students, may not register themselves for FHL summer courses without assistance from FHL staff.

MEAL PLAN: A full-board meal plan is mandatory for all persons living in dormitories. Full-board consists of three meals a day, Monday through Saturday, plus brunch and dinner on Sunday (20 meals per week). Dining Hall meal service is available (except for a few days) during Spring, Summer, and Autumn Quarters.

Meals for students will be served starting with dinner (served 5:00-5:30 on Sunday, 6:00-6:30 on all other days) on the evening before classes begin.

In spring and autumn quarters the final meal served will be breakfast (served 7:45 - 8:15 a.m.) on the Saturday following the final Friday of the term.

The FHL Dining Hall will be closed over the Thanksgiving extended holiday weekend (Thanksgiving is always scheduled on the 4th Thursday of November) closing after breakfast on Wednesday and remaining closed on Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday morning, reopening Sunday evening. Students will be given access to cooking facilities if they choose to stay on campus.

In the summer sessions, the final meal will be lunch on the final Friday of the term (served 12:15-12:45 pm).

OPTIONAL BEDDING RENTAL:


Additional Costs for International Students

All non-U.S. students, including Canadians, accepted to a course or apprenticeship at FHL must request an "I-20 Form" (Certificate of Eligibility for Nonimmigrant Student Status) issued by the University of Washington International Outreach Program. The I-20 Form will be needed to apply for a U.S. student visa through a U.S. embassy or consulate in the student's home country, a process that may require a month or more. Canadians do not need to obtain a U.S. student visa but will be required to present their I-20 Form at the border when entering the U.S.

The University of Washington charges an Express Mailing fee of $40 (Express Mailing is recommended for most students). Instructions on how to apply for the I-20 Form will be provided by FHL staff to all international students following admission to an FHL course or apprenticeship. Once the I-20 Form has been issued by UW, all non-U.S. students, including Canadians, will also need to submit an application and $200 payment for the U.S. "SEVIS I-901" (Student and Exchange Visitor Information System).

Stacy Markman, FHL Student Coordinator, will communicate with all international students and will provide information about how to apply for an I-20 Form and a U.S. student visa (F-1 Visa) AFTER a student has been accepted for a course or apprenticeship at Friday Harbor Labs.

Students attending a workshop (such as the Marine Bioacoustics Workshop) or non-credit course may apply for a U.S Visitor Visa (B-1 Visa).


Financial Aid Request from FHL

Students facing financial constraints are encouraged to apply for financial aid support from Friday Harbor Labs. Awards from FHL are based on both financial need and academic merit. Applicants for financial aid support from FHL do not need to be U.S. citizens and do not need to be currently matriculated at University of Washington. Please review application information at:
